the bottom line in equestrianism-I'm talking pants!

Derriere Equestrian July 2015 Day at the Races Derriere Equestrian

Ok, I know riding breeches or jodhpurs aren't the most flattering item in an equestriennes wardrobe, especially beige or white ones which accentuate the negative and cling to the positive revealing every lump and bump inbetween, including that very unattractive feature, camel toe!

Butt, and this is a big one, we don't have to look like the arse end of equestrianism even if we're not blessed with rear of the year. All makes of breeches fit differently so it's worth taking the time to try on lots of different styles. And yes in this instance I do find it's worth splashing the cash as many of the latest technical fabrics and designs are much more flattering.

One thing there's no excuse for though is VPL!!  I know some women get rid of this problem by going commando but after reading a fellow blogger's embarrassing experience I've decided to keep my pants on when I'm in the saddle-that's the sort of exposure I don't need.  I'm not a thong lover as their irritating ways grate on me, and anyway comfort aside, I still think they leave a tell tale knicker line. The drawers that get my vote are the No VPL knickers from good old M&S. And the new Derriere Equestrian line are a great idea, definitely worth giving a test ride. But if you've got any other pants suggestions please throw them my way!!

Is she or isn't she?

So, no butt, yes do you make sure your rear end doesn't frighten the horses or do you think I'm getting my knickers in a twist over nothing and it's a case of 'out of sight, out of mind?

Come and talk pants in the EQUESTRIAN STYLE FILE group!

    Grey is a really good neutral color too. I find that it shows less with see through than beige/ skin tone does. I like the Victoria's Secret cheeksters with breeches. At least on me, they don't show.

    Hi Ellie, glad you like my blog post :) if you've got white breeches then choose flesh coloured knickers as white ones often show through ;)
